a little bit about speaking of getting credit, the response to sandy. part of the president -- and gentlemen, you can all take a look, as well as folks at home. president obama went to fema and washington, d.c. this morning. and this is what he had to say regarding the response to sandy. let's play it. >> leaders of different political parties working together to fix what is broken. [ applause ] now it's a spirit that says no matter how bad a storm is, no matter how tough times are, we're all in this together. we rise or fall as one nation and as one people. >> if we can pull up the marist poll, the nbc "wall street journal," the president's response to sandy. 73% approve in ohio. 70% out of florida. marc caputo, let me bring you in because 70% of the people in the home state of yours approve of his handling. will that have an impact on perhaps not early voter, but on tuesday those who look back and may have heard comments from the republican primary that were made by governor romney regarding fema. we know fema is still popular in that state for the obvious reasons. >> i th
the devastation of hurricane sandy, stories of heroism are coming out of the wordwo woodwork. tonight, one of the nurses who helped save the lives of four babies during the hurricane. >>> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. residents on the east coast are trying to get their lives back as the cleanup and recovery from sandy continues. thousands of commuters lined up in brooklyn for free buses into manhattan today. of course, getting to the bus was only half the battle. traffic is still tied up in knots. new york mayor, new york's three major airports reopened. this was the first flight to land at laguardia since the storm hit. cars lined up for miles along the new jersey highway to get gasoline. governor chris christie says officials requested emergency supplies of gasoline and fuel from the federal government. there have been 92 reported deaths related to this storm in the united states. the department of energy says more than 4 million customers still have no power. nearly 2 million of those households are in the state of new jersey. utility workers are coming i
are talking a lot about whether or not perceptions of the president, certainly after sandy, seeing him walk around and comfort people helps at all. but when you look at early voting, obviously that was in place before sandy. the president talking today with his new modified stump speech really detailing the folks he's fighting for. he says whether they're in urban area or a rural area, this is what i am fighting for, this very passionate speech as part of his closing argument. >> yeah, i think you're right, tamron. what president obama has done in the past week with sandy can only help him. you have 78% of the american public thinks he's done a good job. that's republicans and democrats. think he's done a good job in handling the sandy situation. and the hurricane relief efforts. and then you look at the early voting, as was just mentioned a moment ago, the president has a 35-point advantage in early voting in iowa. a 30-point advantage in ohio. i'm down in florida right now in tampa. he has an early voting advantage here in florida as well, a state that's still neck and neck. and he's maki
schedule on hold to deal with hurricane sandy. obama's traveling to las vegas and then on to colorado. governor romney, meanwhile, is in virginia today, after several days of softened language and tempered criticism. today, romney decided he was done playing mr. nice guy. >> the president's proposal in a setting like this is to continue on the same road. he -- he has the campaign slogan which is forward. i saw the signs out front. forward. i think forewarned is a better word. >> meanwhile, much of the eastern seaboard from new jersey to connecticut remains a disaster area as the cleanup continues after hurricane sandy. according to the a.p., the storm is responsible for the deaths of at least 74 people. 4.5 million residents still without power. and adding to the frustration, gasoline is becoming an increasingly precious commodity in some area. traffic has become so bad, in new york city, mayor michael bloomberg mandated any commuter car entering the city must have at least three people in it. president obama and governor romney's renewed campaign come as the latest polls show preside
. >> at least i got you talking about sandy. let's go to the news. on the eve of the presidential election -- today marks one full week since the hurricane came ashore. and the hurricane, at least at this point, killed at least 110 people. leaving a path of destruction that reshaped entire stretches of the northeast coastline. the cover of "new york" magazine shows the breadth of the impact on manhattan alone. much of the southern half of the island in pitch black. this morning nearly 1 million people in new jersey remain without power or heat. as overnight temperatures dip near freezing. as cold weather sets in, new york city mayor michael bloomberg says as many as 40,000 people may need to find new places to live. that is a daunting task for a city known for its already tight housing market. the announcement set up the potential return of fema trailers like those used in the wake of hurricane katrina. gas lines hours long stretched through the weekend across the tri-state area. in some cases stations are now using gas-powered generators to pump the fuel out of the ground. new york govern
for sandy victims. under the boardwalk ♪ down by the sea yeah ♪ on a blanket with my baby ♪ is where i'll be >>> good day, i'm andrea mitchell, live at nbc's democracy plaza here in new york where we're going to bring you nonstop coverage of decision 2012. with only two days to go before the election, we have the latest results from the final nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. object the east coast, eleion officials racing against the clock to get polling locations up and running despite the storm. while storm-ravaged communities are still waiting for power to come on. and debris to be cleared. >>> 30 to 40,000 people here in new york city alone remain without power in their homes in sandy's wake. at a briefing this morning, new york city's mayor, michael bloomberg, warned that election officials are facing tough obstacles. >>> this is a suspect that is not run by the state or by the city. and they have real problems and we've got to make sure that everybody can vote. it's not going to be easy, but we'll both work hard on that. >>> and in battered new jersey, with freezing temperatur
to hurricane sandy, that is not actually how it worked out. nobody knows exactly how this particular october surprise hurricane is going to affect the technical act of voting. we have had some early voting suspensions and voter registration deadlines and absentee ballot deadlines change in a lot of states directly affected so there may be a technical direct effect of the storm, but more broadly, and especially in terms of these key swing states, this storm is a major unexpected external variable that, frankly, rivals the election in terms of the country's attention. it turns out this october surprise does have political salience. at least in this sense. the most eagerly awaited endorsement in this presidential race happened just before the storm. right? that was colin powell. president obama today actually released an ad highlighting the colin powell endorsement. >> will you endorse president obama? >> yes. when he took over, we were in one of the worst recessions we had seen in recent times. close to a depression. and i saw over the next several years stabilization come back in the financia
to tackle the damage from hurricane sandy. need another image, here's another. he's our country leader comforting a jersey resident hit by the storm. need proof of this president being a uniting figure? here's the tape. >> the president has been all over this. the president has been outstanding. i appreciate that type of leadership. >> but it wasn't just that kind of leadership that sets president obama apart in this natural disaster. he exposes how wrong the romney ticket is about the role of government. we're better together, not apart, not alone. and today, yet another romney argument disintegrating. he argued today's jobs report is, quote, a sad reminder that the economy is at a virtual standstill. a standstill? we've had 32 straight months of private sector job growth. that's nearly 5 1/2 million jobs. president obama took us back from the brink of an economic catastrophe. that's leadership. that's a heck of a closing argument and what governor romney is offering doesn't even stand. joining me is krystaal ball and alicia menendez. krystal, will we look back and say that this is th
women. and they're still counting votes in florida. not again. nine days after sandy's, the east coast is getting another had hit, a powerful nor'easter, threatening to cause new flooding and power outages in the same areas battered by the hurricane. good day. i'm andrea mitchell, the day after, live in new york. what many expected to be a close contest ended as a resounding electoral college win for president obama. after a hard-fought race spanning two years, so what should we now expect from a second term? joining me now for our daily fix, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor and managing editor of post politics.com and karen, national political correspondent fors the "washington post," as well as "time's" senior correspondent michael crowley. welcome all. thanks so much. well, our daily fix, what are you looking at, chris cizilla, what are the lessons you've learned and looking at in the four years to come? >> well, yeah. i mean let's talk first about lessons learned, andrea. i would say republicans, to blame mitt romney for this loss in some ways misses the point. if you look at the e
of aftermath of hurricane sandy. he is sending -- >> we don't have any patience for bureaucracy. we don't have any patience for red tape. and we want to make sure that we are figuring out a way to get to yes as opposed to no when it comes to these problems. >> meanwhile, mitt romney also has his sights on several key swing states today, starting with new hampshire. >> you saw the differences between barack obama and me in those debates. i like those debates. i got to be honest. i mean, he says it has to be this way. i say it can't stay this way. he's offering excuses. i'm offering a plan. i can't wait to get started. >> mitt romney will also visit iowa and colorado today, running mate paul ryan already wrapped up an event today in ohio. he now heads to pennsylvania, virginia and florida. we have two new nbc wall street marist polls out for you. president obama holds a 6-point lead among likely voters in ohio. 51 to 45%. then in the sunshine state the president gets support of 49% from likely voters. mitt romney coming in with 47%. let's head to mentor, ohio where the president is holding a cam
, especially in key battlegrounds. >> let me bring you in. we talked about a bump after hurricane sandy, the image of president obama with governor christie. according to our first read team, they say if there's a bump it's a bump in obama's direction. the caveat for team obama, al gore in 2000 and gerald ford in '76 had the momentum and ended up losing. both were representing incumbent party. what do you make if any of any comparisons there? >> i think what people liked to see last week in the midst of hurricane sandy was the most port zan of republicans, the man who delivered the keynote address at the convention working with the incumbent president, who is the democratic standard bearer. that's what people most want. when i had the opportunity to sit down the president recently, the first question i asked was about polarization. what are you prepared to do to get things done and to compromise, regardless of where the blame lies, for that which has taken place up until now? that's why i think it struck a chord. >> let's talk about the things we're seeing and getting a lot of people on
. let's talk about the president talking about sandy and laying out his big domestic accomplishment. >> also talking about. when the president talks about an america for everybody, that's a vision that a lot of different parts of this country can see themselves in. women, veterans, african-american, immigrant, latino, asian. that's part of the strength of his message. the thing that's been so beautiful to me is as tragic as sandy was, it's meant the president has come back to an essential thing. not just his campaign, not just of his presidency but of his life's work which is we're in this together. how do we make sure -- i read something he was saying. everybody has to have a fair shot. the point being, we're able o come back to that mess a.m. i think that's so important. i also think it is part of what -- if you're one of those vote who are have not made up your mind and you're hearing that, you've got to be thinking, you mow what, yeah, that's what i want. i want that optimistic pfuture where everybody has a chance. he's not evil. >> there's something about sort of how the disast
been, of course, there was a stall because of sandy. and if you believe all the polls and i do, a slight moving away from mitt romney over the past couple of days. >> i think sandy convoluted everything and leaves us with a real nail biter. >> yeah, convoluted everything. look at new jersey, just right across the river. you have chris christie hugging and loving on barack obama and then bruce springsteen hugging and love on chris christie. this is willie geist, as it was foretold in ghostbusters so many moons ago, cats and dogs living together. >> 6:06, the first "ghostbusters" reference. >> i'm going to try to average two an hour. >> chris christie's been waiting for that hug from the boss for a long time, by the way. >> he did cry. >> chris christie's a governor and his state is under siege from the weather system. it's not like the president was hugging and loving on john boehner and they were riding in air force one together. that would have been a story, this is just people doing their job. >> you think about chris christie, i mean -- >> what? >> you should have called cha
and florida, but put tempers to the test. >> let them vote! >> the other big wild card, sandy. a week after the storm recovery efforts are still winding slowly through the hardest hit. new jersey governor chris christie who praised president obama's response to sandy repeated his support for mitt romney. sort of. >> on tuesday i'm voting for mitt romney because i think he's the best guy for the job. it doesn't mean that i can't turn to the president of the united states of america and say to him, thank you, sir, for providing good leadership in this crisis. >> and whom do you trust? the grid iron predicts. a redskin hometown defeat favors the challenger but the lsu/alabama matchup offers good news for the incumbent. >> and good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in democracy plaza in new york city. joining me for our daily fix, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor, and managing editor of post politics.com and mark halperin political analyst for "time" and msnbc. so, first to you, chris, let's talk about the state of the race. >> well, we're almost there, andrea. i think the state of the race is that
and guy rights and stuff like that. but the obama people know that he has had this opportunity with sandy to get out there and look extremely presidential, to be bipartisan, to kind of wear the mantel of commander in chief in the midst of this national tragedy and they think that that is to their benefit and, of course, people see that and they are playing on that sort of thing, too. he has the advantage of office and it's not to be sneezed at at this stage of the game. >> thank you both for your time tonight. >> thanks, reverend. >> thanks, rev. >>> tonight, a developing investigation into mitt romney's plan to train an army of poll watchers to intimidate and mislead you at the polls. it's a big, important story and we have exclusive new video the romney campaign has been trying to stop you from seeing. >>> also, the gop's freak kout over chris christie. they just can't deal with this praise for the president. and now it's sinking to a new low. >>> and george w. bush has a big october surprise for mitt romney. and he's definitely not going to like it. >>> all of this, plus the great glor
't moving in pennsylvania. and they felt at that point they were flattened by sandy. i don't think this race was close enough to be impacted by a hurricane. >> no. >> but that's certainly what they believe. >> chris christie, yes, springsteen's his buddy, and springsteen may have brought him over. i think that people -- i was in ohio a couple weeks ago. you know, there's great wealth in ohio. there are companies that have given out billions of dollars to people in ohio because there's oil and gas everywhere. and the whole northeast ohio was flooded withal abouts of dollars of oil money. those people are not unhappy. >> andrea, we saw it early on, and we were talking about how the right track/wrong track in ohio shifted six months ago. mitt romney, i think, one of the pivotal moments when mitt romney told john kasich, stop bragging about your economy in ohio. ohio was a leading indicator. >> it was a leading indicator. you know, the other thing about that mitigates against agreement is the people who were elected in the house, and they picked up seats. the democrats did miserably. i think you
is not going well. republicans have so far decided that hurricane sandy is the reason mitt romney lost. they have also decided that fact checking is the reason mitt romney lost. karl rove said it's democratic voter suppression is the reason mitt romney lost. really? there was also a satirical blog post, a piece of comedy, written about military votes not being counted. and that got parts of the right very excited today that that was the reason that mitt romney lost. until they realized that that blog post was satire. the republican effort so far to diagnose what went wrong on tuesday, why mitt romney lost, that effort has not gone very well. take conservative columnists. in the "washington post" today, he took a stab at diagnosing what ails the republicans now. specifically, he assessed why the republican party has an issue with women voters. this was his assessment, quote, the problem here for republicans is not policy, but delicacy. speaking about culturally sensitive and philosophically complex issues with reflection and prudence. republicans don't have a policy problem when it come
't mind. >>> meanwhile, still in the dark nearly two weeks after hurricane sandy. tengs are mounting as 300,000 around new york city and trying to get the lights and heat working again. >> it can't be this hard. the rest of the country can do it. why can't we do it? >> amen, sister. >>> up next, florida hung in the balance until today. what took so long in the sunshine state? we'll talk to the supervisor of elections for duval county, florida, next. this is msnbc. a winter wonderland doesn't just happen. it takes some doing. some coordinating. and a trip to the one place with the new ideas that help us pull it all together. from the things that hang and shine... ...to the things that sparkle and jingle. all while saving the things that go in our wallet. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. right now, get an assortment of martha stewart living ornamen,s free when you purchase select artificial trees. >>> back now with developing news. election officials in the sunshine state doing a lot of explaining after it took four days to declare president obama the winner
and gas rationing continuing in new york city. >> amazing, joe. 11 days since sandy struck, and now new york city and surrounding areas are now having gas rations. every other day you can get gas depending on the last digit of your license plate. this is because of supply and distribution issues. the power is going back on in a lot of those gas stations, but these lines continue. just to give you an example in brooklyn where i live, at 2:00 a.m. when i come to work, it was still a two-hour-long line. people sitting there with gas cans waiting to get it. it's incredible that it continues now almost two weeks since sandy struck. gas rationing because of shortages in new york city. this morning temperatures continue to be very cold on the heels of that nor'easter. the snow is still on the ground. bundle up. windchills in the 20s in new england. even down to the 30s all the way down to washington, d.c. so this is it, though. we're going to start to warm it up in this region of the country. we desperately need it. it's been rough out there. it's going to be in the 50s today instead of the 40
